Question:  What is the Climate Solutions Caucus?

Answer:  In February of 2016, two Florida Congressmen formed the Climate Solutions Caucus, a bipartisan working group in the House of Representatives. It is comprised of an equal number of Democrats and Republicans working together to study, develop, and introduce legislative solutions to the challenges we face as a result of climate change.

By November of that first year, the Caucus had grown to 20 members – 10 Democrats and 10 Republicans. After the 2016 election, it dropped to 9 Democrats and 6 Republicans due to retirements and losses, but quickly recovered and continued to grow.

As of May 2018, the Caucus roster has reached 74 members, drawn equally from each party. [1,2] We see this growth as a sign of accelerating interest in bipartisan problem-solving in general, and specifically with regard to climate change.

While the Caucus has not formally embraced CCL’s Carbon Fee and Dividend plan, we honor their commitment to the mission of depoliticizing our changing climate, and we see the Climate Solutions Caucus as an important avenue to help bring that about.

Republican Representatives interested in joining the Climate Solutions Caucus should contact Hector Arguello in Rep. Carlos Curbelo’s office. Democratic Representatives should contact Josh Lipman in Rep. Ted Deutch’s office.
